but also the there's been a disengagement on the part of the obama administration itself. >> woodruff: what do you mean? >> they view iraq as just another country. they don't have the same emotional or psychological or even foreign policy stake in it that the previous administration had. so i think the united states can't solve all the problems in iraq certainly but it's not playing as active role in mediating these internal issues. >> woodruff: what's the relationship rajiv between the people of iraq and their government. how is that working? >> depends on which people. for the majority shiite population they see the government has largely working in their interests. the others look at the government and say these people aren't here to help me and serve me. i think there is a desire among many iraqis for a big tent, more secular government. but that's not the shape of the political system that they have today. in my view this is a result of the legacy of the american occupation and our military intervention there. the decisions made almost ten years ago today deba'ath phiing the country, e
a different result and what he said was this is about the obama administration trying to make me a scapegoat to try to cover their own failures elsewhere within the gsa and i'm not taking it. >> yeah, well he was the former leader of the entire gsa and also the leader of that rocky mountain divisions that sent dozens of employees to the lavish conference, and almost a million dollars of waste at that conference. if there's not accountability at the top for the people in charge of these people, i mean, who is going be to be held accountable for that? i think that's a very serious question and by the way, he was at at least one planning meeting for this conference. >> megyn: here they are, playing the ukulele on our dime, getting ready for the conference where they he get the commemorative coins and play with the mind reader and whatever else they did and we paid for. >> looks awesome. >> megyn: fantastic, if i didn't pay for it i'd feel better about it it. but he said they did not brief him of the details of purchasing and contracting and wasn't heavily involved in the planning. the question

is oversteping the bounds of his constitutional authorities as commander in chief. the obama administration made an effort before it took out the troops to curtail that and create a different governing arrangement. >> ifill: let me bring you to the u.s. side. michael, you talked to the military a lot. if how does the u.s. military view the war and what happened in iraq? >> well, you're never going to have anyne vieweven within an institution like the military certainly i do think the military can look at what they did in iraq and they see early mistakes in the first years which exacerbated the conflict, the rush to failure, so to speak handing over to the iraqis before they were ready to shoulder the burden. i do think the surge of the military operation and military strategy was effective and essential. in fact, i can't imagine how president obama could have withdrawn the forces and left behind a reasonably stable iraq without i i tnk tilitry acquitted itself well where the -- there's been a shortfall on the political side and trying to craft a political set of arrangements in iraq that leads t
, and the accusations flying back and forth about chemical weapons. the obama administration has said in the past this would be a game changer that is a red line. as we were discussing earlier with iran watson, tens of thousands of people have been readily killed by conventional weapons, why would this make it different? >> i think the great fear that the u.s. has, that the obama administration has, certainly the israelis have, if these weapons, if these stockpiles got into the wrong hands, they sense right now -- i think they still sense, that the syrian military of president bashar al assad, even though he's desperate and may be on his last leg, he's probably not going to use expensively chemical weapons. but they fear these weapons could get in the hands of terrorists, sympathizers to al qaeda, if it got into the hands of hezbollah which the u.s. and israel see as an extension in effect of iran, there would be deep concern. i don't think the israelis would allow that to happen. i think they would use military force to prevent that if necessary. and i suspect the united states would as well. so
governors asking, republican governors and democratic governors and the obama administration says yes, provided we protect the welfare and work requirements. republicans decided to lie about it and say the president and the administration did exactly the opposite of what they actually did. he took the work requirements out of welfare. he just wants a free ride for everybody. he's buying votes with the free welfare, obama money. it's not true at all. it was the opposite of what the administration had done. the republicans thought they had something. mitt romney made a campaign ad out of it. a few days before the election, romney made another campaign ad out of the same untrue thing. it was a lie. it was debunked. it was one of the brighter, more obvious campaigns of a campaign filled with lies. it was the lie you only try in the hottest heat of an election year when you are desperate because nothing else is working. now, bizarrely, in cold, cold march, it is back. republicans are pushing a bill right now in this congress to stop the thing that only existed in mitt romney's campaign ads
closed door meeting is a signal to cyber actors that the obama administration is not talking but taking action. they played down the symbolism of hosting the business leaders in the situation room where they witnessed the bin laden take-down. >> that's not the subject. no. we have meetings there on occasion, on different topics not related to the national security issues. >> in an interview with abc news, president called out china for american ideas, the intellectual property. >> we made it clear to china and some other state actors that we expect them to follow international norms and abide by national rules -- abide by international rules. we have had tough talk with them. >> this comes one day after the senior intelligence and officials told contract it's a leading threat. >> what is happening in the cyber arena cuts across any of the disciplines, counterintelligence or counterterrorism. as well as criminal. >> in the last year, with every major u.s. bank reporting website problems including denial of service or intermittent delays blamed on state sponsored cyber attacks the head of

time provide food and other non- lethal aid directly to the rebels. but the obama administration has held back from sending weapons, citing the influx of foreign extremists into rebel ranks. the president could confront questions about that policy when he visits the middle east next week, with stops in israel, the west bank and jordan. >> time is of the essence here. >> brown: frederic hof, formerly the president's special advisor for transition in syria, is now at the atlantic council, a washington think tank. >> it is probably time for the united states and its allies to engage directly in strong relationships with these armed rebels, the ones we've been able to vet, the ones who share our basic values. some of those relationships may involve arming. >> brown: the u.s. and others also face the challenge of helping more than a million syrians who have fled to surrounding lebanon, turkey, jordan and iraq. even more are displaced inside syria. today, in beirut, lebanon, the u.n.'s high commissioner on refugees warned, again, of ripple effects. >> the syrian conflict is more than a hu
't expecting much from president obama's visit. the obama administration made it clear that it's a listening tour and he'll speak to israeli and palestinian officials to get the lay of the land of where they see the future of the region but that being said, secretary of state john kerry is also here at the moment in jerusalem. he will be making these meetings and these rounds as well. he'll stay in the region after president obama leaves. he'll come back to jerusalem, speak to israeli officials about possibly starting peace talks -- starting peace talks again to find resolution when it comes to israeli/palestinian issue. it will be interesting to see what president obama says tomorrow when he speaks in front of hundreds of israeli students. he's made some strong words in the past condemning settlement construction in the occupied territories of the palestinians in the west bank. interesting to see what he has to say to these israeli students tomorrow. kelly? >> great stuff. thanks very much for that. straight ahead on the program, the internet isn't a vending machine. that's according to our
: it would be great if the obama administration simply released the information and told us what was actually happening. that would be great. but so far they have not been very forthcoming. and with a compliant mainstream media, people aren't asking a lot of questions. while the smoking gun is actually reporting the story about how blumenthal's e-mail account had been hacked and how the four e-mails that had been sent to hillary have now been distributed to members of congress and members of the media, they haven't revealed what's in the memo. >>brian: there is no information that's inside. you could say it would be great for the obama administration to come forward. but nobody thinks that personal interaction should be public. when you e-mail your personal friend and attorney, you don't want that to be published. >>steve: remember what happened with wikileaks and julian as sang and the guys at wikileaks, as soon as they got their hands on the stuff at the bush white house, let's put it out there for everybody to see. it's interesting to see what the people in the press, the restraint they're

house for us. how much of a problem is north korea right now for the obama administration? >> reporter: well, i think it is a problem, craig. the obama administration had been hoping when kim jong-un took over that he would help to lead north korea out of isolationism. really the opposite has happened. he's become more bellicose than his father and these intercepters are going to be placed because of recent provocations from north korea and there is a sense that they've made advances in nuclear capabilities. last week, north korea threatened a preemptive nuclear strike against the united states and also they're ending their treaty with south korea. to there is a lot of concern. we should say this move to increase the number of intercepters marks a shift in the obama administration's policy, because back in 2010, they had said they weren't going to add new intercepters. this comes as president obama is just starting his second term. he's mapped out an ambitious agenda. but experts say this is going to take up a large portion of the next several years, concerns about north korea and iran
.s. house voted today to block the obama administration from granting state waivers to work requirements under welfare. republicans charged the president is trying to gut the 1996 welfare reform law. last summer, the white house said it would grant waivers, if states can meet welfare-to-work goals by other means. so far, no state has applied for a waiver. the house bill is not expected to pass the democratic- controlled senate. a juvenile court in steubenville, ohio today opened a rape trial that's drawn international attention. the two defendants are high school football players, ages 16 and 17. they're accused of raping a 16- year-old girl last august. social media postings have fueled claims that other students should have been charged and that police under- played the incident to protect the football team. the police have denied it. in china, authorities near shanghai pulled hundreds more dead pigs from a river that provides drinking water to the city. in all, they've found more than 6,600 pig carcasses in the water since friday. officials say the dead animals may have been dumped by
have had unpleasant phone calls and conversations with people in the obama administration, but i had them with the bush administration and that's -- well, it's part of the job. the truth of the matter is, i never really understood the people who get a nasty phone call and then go on tv to talk about it. it's part of the job. you do a story they don't like, you're going to get yelled at and you listen to them or you yell back and then you move on. >> this is what you signed up for. let me ask you about journalists often accused, as you know, about caring less about issues, substance governing and jeb bush on "meet the press" last week raised this point with david gregory. >> before i let you go, who is the hottest florida politician right now? you or marco rubio? who are we more likely to see in the white house? >> man, you guys are crack addic addicts. you really are obsessed with all this politics. >> i have been called a lot of things. >> crack addicts. that's a serious charge. >> i mean, look, obviously, if there's a politician versus a reporter, my first inclination is to go with
the lines that the obama administration has, if republicans won't give it all on loopholes a anything. >> but they will. >> if they do, then i think we are in business, because, you know, then i think there is something to talk about. >> i don't mean to speak for the entire party but, barney, i mean, you know better than anybody how it goes. you get somebody in front of the camera. you're in front of the camera and you're a first turn or second turn democrat from massachusetts, barney are you giving on entitlements? you say no. you ask me is a first or second-term republican? no, we just gave them tax increases. we are not doing it again. but then you get the cameras off and people say, okay i'll give you this, you give me that. taking care of the long-term debt is so important. >> i'm closer to you now than when you were a first or second-term republican. >> you like him more. >> he didn't say that. >> personally i always liked him. i would be asked by a reporter in the midst of a negotiation will you do this or that? i'd have to ask the reporters, how many votes do you have in the s
